In an extensive eighty-year career spanning various artistic movements and styles, Venezuela-born, Los Angeles-based artist Luchita Hurtado has dedicated her practice to investigating the interconnectedness of the natural world, the cosmos and the environment. Join us for the opening reception of her inaugural presentation at Hauser & Wirth Z_ü_rich entitled ‘Just Down the Street’. An intimate selection of Hurtado’s early works from the 1960s are on display – a dynamic series of drawings and paintings on paper that reflect a moment of flux between abstraction and figuration. By merging visceral and abstract sensibilities, the works on view express a universality and transcendence that have continued to define the artist’s practice for decades.
